The ubiquitous use IT in our society has transformed how learning, training and knowledge management takes place in education, work and in everyday life. This digitalization of learning at work is characterized by rapid technological development leading to new challenges and opportunities at multiple levels of practice. The resulting changes are many times unplanned and complex, and having unforeseen consequences on individual, organizational as well as societal levels. To understand as well as guide activities within such a context interdisciplinary research is necessary.
The DigitaL-project is a collaboration between University West, University of Gothenburg and Region Västra Götaland. The purpose of the project is to establish a sustainable and internationally leading research environment with focus on learning in a digitized work life.Through an excellent research environment we intend to support regional actors to meet the challenges and the competence needs within the scope of the project, as well as be an arena for innovation and development within the project scope. The project is led by one project manager from each university: Lars Svensson (University West), Johan Lundin (University of Gothenburg)
